Vestel is set to bring viewers around Europe extra features for their Smart TVs with the launch of its TV Smart Centre app. Free-to-download, the new TV remote control app is designed for Smart TVs from fifty popular as well as premium brands, offering more personalised control, as well as ultra-convenient and fast access to TV listings, apps, and screen share functions.
Split into five sections – Home, Guide, Remote, Applica
To help narrow down searches, the Home screen’s Dashboard features extra information for up to thirty programmes and films, providing insightful synopses about shows and movies, as well as more detail about the genres and casts. While the Primetime section picks out and highlights specific programmes for peak evening viewing times between 8pm and midnight, the “For You” section does so for programmes, regardless of when they are scheduled.
The Home screen also offers quick and easy access to a whole range of flexible, and customisable viewing options. With one tap of the screen mirroring button, viewers can bring their saved videos, music, and photos straight to the big screen, and with one tap of the red control, record or set a reminder for their favourite TV series.
From the Home screen, Follow Me TV can also be accessed, enabling users to tune into live TV content on any connected mobile device from anywhere within range of the user’s home WiFi network.
Bringing together all the most frequently used functions to one centralised place, the TV Smart Centre app Remote screen features a power button to switch the TV on, a 4-way D-pad, and buttons for several alternative search style options. These include modes for searching with numerical and alphabetical keyboards, and a touchpad, as well as a voice search function for simple remote control commands.
To stream the most highly sought-after content quickly and easily, there are also shortcut buttons for Netflix and YouTube, and a selection of media player controls that are immediately to hand.

Giving viewers more personalised control and flexibility, the Guide screen offers further access to the screen mirroring button and the Follow Me TV function, along with the latest, most up-to-date TV listings with its “What’s on TV” section.
Searching for must-see VoD content is also quick and easy, thanks to the Apps screen.
